Dieter Bihlmaier Selection

Maskerade
Creative/Sonorama (Germany), 1974. (reissue)
A very open, spacious sort of set from the German jazz scene of the 70s – one that's very different than both the hard-driving fusion of the time, and some of the more free jazz-styled work from the avant garde! There's a lean lineup here – a group that features a variety of flutes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1973.
A never-heard live set from the mighty Donald Byrd – recording here with live accompaniment from the Mizell Brothers – at a level that's every bit as wonderful as their work with the trumpeter in the studio! The material was originally recorded during a same series of albums that Blue ... CD

Sonny Red

Sonny Red
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971.
A fantastic album as a leader from Sonny Red – a saxophonist who never got much chance to record under his own name, but always gave us something special when he did! Sonny recorded famously with Donald Byrd and Curtis Fuller in the 60s – but here, he's in an even hipper 70s mode of ... CD
Impulse, 2022.
A long-overdue solo debut from Shabaka Hutchings – the London-based reed player who's been making huge waves in Comet Is Coming and Sons Of Kemet – stepping out here with an equally great musical vision of his own! The style here is more spiritual and meditative – as if Shabaka ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic/Expansion (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s.
The hands of Webster Lewis are on a classic Fender Rhodes on the cover – and you'll hear plenty of that instrument on this collection, along with all the other many keyboards that Lewis can handle so well! Webster started out as a straighter jazzman in his early years, but by the time of ... CD

EABS

2061
Astigmatic (Poland), 2022.
Fantastic work from EABS – a combo who continue to amaze us with the diversity of sounds they create, and the depth of feeling they can get from a mix of acoustic and electric instruments! There's maybe an even deeper spiritual vibe going on here than previous records – music that's ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1977.
An unreleased album of sorts from roots reggae great Patrick Andy – tracks that were initially culled together by producer Yabby You in the late 70s, and which include a few never-issued tunes by Andy, plus rare stereo mixes of some other tunes too! If you know the famous title single that ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s. Gatefold
Ernesto Djedje left the planet at a very young age – but thanks to recordings like this, he really left his mark on the music scene in the Ivory Coast – and the larger world of West African music as well! There's a special blend of traditional sounds and contemporary elements going on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Garrett Saracho

Jazz Is Dead 15 – Garrett Saracho
Jazz Is Dead, 2022.
One of the most ambitious recordings in the excellent Jazz Is Dead series – and one that marks a long-overdue return for Garrett Sarracho – an artist who gave the world the excellent En Medio album for Impulse Records in the early 70s – but who has mostly kept his talents ... CD
A&M/Real Gone, 1969. (reissue)
A lost gem on late 60s A&M Records – cut at a time when the label was moving away from its mainstay of dreamy pop, and cutting some really wonderful work in a much rootsier mode! Steve performs his own tunes – as well as work by Pete LaFarge, Hank Williams, and Marvin Rainwater ... LP, Vinyl record album
ECM (Germany), 2022.
A record that's very much in the subtle sonic territory that the late drummer Paul Motian might have appreciated – but one that also comes cross in ways that are nicely different than any sort of music Motian recorded himself! There's definitely drums on the record – handled by Joey ... CD
Because (France), 2022.
French disco legend Cerrone has been alive and well in recent years – thanks to attention from a younger generation who've really helped reintroduce the world to the genius of his grooves! The set's definitely got more of a contemporary vibe than Cerrone's 70s music, but all the best ... CD

Art Farmer & Slide Hampton

In Concert
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986.
A wonderful pairing of players – the well-compressed flugelhorn of Art Farmer and the deeper trombone stylings of Slide Hampton – two players who cut some of their best work for European labels during this point in their career, including the performances heard on this album! The live ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1965.
A beautiful early album from Sadao Watanabe – a Polydor session recorded before some of his better-known albums for Takt/Columbia, but done with a similar mix of soul jazz and bossa influences! Watanabe's horn has really sharpened up from his already-great earlier sides – and he's ... CD

Fumio Itabashi

TOH (SHMCD pressing)
Frasco/Universal (Japan), 1976.
Sublime 70s work from pianist Fumio Itabashi, easily one of our favorite Japanese talents of the time – a pianist with a wonderful sense of rhythm and freedom at the same time – very much on display on this beautiful record! The tracks are long and flowing – full of feeling, and ... CD
L+R Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1964.
Brilliant modern jazz from German trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – recording here in 1964, but sounding years ahead of his time, with an amazing a blend of jazz and Asian styles! The album's one of Mangelsdorff's best ever – a set of rhythmic tunes that seem clearly informed by the ... CD

Joyce

Natureza
Far Out (UK), 1977.
A record that could have been the biggest breakthrough in the career of the legendary Joyce – yet the set was never issued at the time! The late 70s session has Joyce recording in New York, under the guidance of studio maestro Claus Ogerman – who has a wonderful way of elevating the ... CD

Dave Rempis/Elisabeth Harnik/Fred Lonberg-Holm/Tim Daisy

Earscratcher
Aerophonic, 2022.
Very striking sounds from a very striking quartet – one that brings Austrian pianist Elisabeth Harnik into play with the Chicago sounds of Dave Rempis on alto, Fred Longberg-Holm on cello, and Tim Daisy on drums! The tracks are all long, and have a very freely improvising quality – ... CD
L+R Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988.
A very late session from trumpet legend Chet Baker – recording here in the very unusual company of tenorist Archie Shepp – a player that few could have imagined working together a few years before! By the time of the date, Shepp had become more of a traditionalist, but still with an ... CD

Nicholas Payton

Couch Sessions
Smoke Sessions, 2022.
A record that has Nicholas Payton nicely changing it up from the usual – not just playing trumpet, but bringing in a fair bit of piano, Fender Rhodes, and clavinet too – but in ways that are very different than you might expect! Buster Williams is on bass and Lenny Williams is on drums ... CD
